The Light That's Lost Within Us

Game NameThe Light That's Lost Within Us
Game SystemWorld of Darkness
ThemeExploration and acceptance
FlavourGrim with some hope
Plot SummaryI don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song I can hear, playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening
- Jackson Browne "For A Dancer"

It's over. Maybe you knew it was coming, or perhaps it was a total surprise. Maybe a crowd mourned you, maybe nobody even misses you.

John or Jane Doe? Beloved celebrity? At this point it makes little difference.

The world went black and the next thing you'll see isn't much better.

This is Wraith: the Oblivion. I use the original book, but if you have another we can hash the differences as the come. The story will be largely unstructured, but will follow a weak plan.

The app process will be simple, see below. We'll dip character sheets in a thread once everyone is accepted. If you want to know another character make the link obvious in both apps.


So, who were you? How old you were, what career you followed, etc.

What killed you, was it fast and surprising or slow and awaited?

What mattered to you more than anything? Three people, places, or things.

How did people react to your dying? How do they remember you?

What did you believe about death before it came for you?

I love Wraith. Now I have to dig through all my stuff to find the book.

I love Wraith as well. How do you plan on working the Shadows of each player?

We could do it the traditional way, other players controlling shadows. I guess a secret box to that player. We could alternatively have me run the shadows for time. We'll take a vote while we do the sheets.

When you say Original, do you mean 1st edition? It doesn't matter to me personally, I have the pdf versions of all 3 (1st, 2nd, and W20) and a hard copy of 2nd edition.

I'm familiar with WoD/CoD rules but I've never played Wraith. I can download a PDF of the rules if I'm accepted. Will get an application up this weekend.

So, who were you? How old you were, what career you followed, etc.
Eric Glass. Mid 40-to early 50. Small corporation middle manager.

What killed you, was it fast and surprising or slow and awaited?
Can't quite remember...hard to think. I might have been in an auto accident, or possibly my heart simply failed one night. I don't think it was a crime of violence or a slow disease. I wasn't expecting to die so soon...

What mattered to you more than anything? Three people, places, or things.
I thought my wife mattered, but now I'm not certain. I thought I loved her, but...did I spend enough time with here? I suppose the office mattered, because I was there every day on time. Money didn't really matter-I didn't try to hard for bonuses, promotions or raises. The annual meeting in the park mattered-I was never the president of the committee, but always trying to help it.

How did people react to your dying? How do they remember you?
My wife has withdrawn and become silent. My co-workers put a few dollars into the annual meeting fund, and replaced me with someone new. I lost touch with my family some time ago, and am afraid to look and wee how they are doing.

What did you believe about death before it came for you?
I thought there was an afterlife, but I never imagined one like THIS.

Application for WoD Wraith "The Light that's lost within us" gameWho was I? Johnny Carver, a 21 year old man who had my whole life ahead of me. Every teenager has a rough time but I'd gotten past the worst of mine. I was in the final part of the police academy program when it all ended.

 


Three most important: my sister, my church, my award.

 


How did people react?
 


What did I believe about death? Hell, I tried not to think about it. Maybe believed in God every third day, didn’t think about it the other days. I sure didn’t think it would be like this!
